8 Ideas for a Healthier Earth in 2022

8 Ideas for a Healthier Earth in 2022

Every little step towards an eco-friendly action helps.

We all know global warming is one of the biggest threats that our planet is currently facing. Too much plastic is being dumped in our oceans annually. And with this in mind, many of us are left believing that we can't do anything that can help this, but this couldn't be more wrong ~ thankfully! 

Here are five little things you can do that'll leave a big eco-friendly footprint on our earth for a long time!


1. Pick a favourite place in the environment, and visit it often


This was a trick taught to me many years ago by my teacher. She instructed us to find a place, whether it be a park, a spot near the river, a field, beach, or mountain, and journal there. The more we visited it, the more we realised that these places mattered to us. We were then encouraged to pursue ways to help restore our favourite places by creating fundraisers, rubbish collecting, raising awareness, etc.

Now with more years behind me, I can see that the same is true for our homes. The more we're in them, the more we take pride in it. If each of us treated different spots in the environment like it was our home, we would take much better care of it. 


2. Make Small Donations to Environmental NGOs

Another way you can help environmental initiatives is by donating money on a regular basis. Don't think that your contribution is too small. Every dollar counts, and there are some really great initiatives out there that are both community focused and designed for employers to get involved with!


3. Make Yourself Aware about Global Warming

Everyone knows climate change is a major problem but they don't realise the extent of it. This is why it is important to educate ourselves through multiple sources. You can read detailed articles online and watch documentaries on your favourite streaming app like Netflix.

You can watch these documentaries with your family and make sure that everyone in your house is aware of their own carbon footprint and what they can do to help minimise that footprint.


4. Buy Eco-Friendly Products

With global warming being an imminent threat, there are many established, and new businesses that are now focusing on offering vegan and eco-friendly products. You can now buy volumising shampoo online and vegan hair products in Australia that reduce harmful chemicals and plastic, which will help ensure your carbon footprint is minimal.

Using eco-friendly hair treatment products that come in eco packaging will help to stop over 373 million plastic bottles from reaching landfill!


5. Volunteer

Search for anti-global warming initiatives in your area and find out if they are looking for volunteers. Getting involved personally allows you to become more responsible and knowledgeable. It's also a great way to meet like minded people within the community!


6. Install a Water Tank and/or Solar Panels

Electricity produced with coal and oil is one of the major culprits causing global warming. If you're in a position to install solar panels to complement or completely replace your electric power sources. This will not only be environment-friendly but will also save you money in the long run.


7. Walk or Ride to Work

Looking to get fit and help save the environment? Ride to work at least once a week and save the earth a whopping 15 pounds of carbon dioxide from being emitted into our atmosphere for a 6 kilometre trip! 

It'll also save you some dollars in the bank, making it an economic, and ecological smart choice. 


8. Reduce - Reuse - Recycle

Go through your house and pile up items ready for the bin, everything in your house can be reused or recycled/upcycled into something better!



Hopefully after reading this, you'll see that making small changes leads to big impacts. Taking the above steps will help to make sure that you’ve done your part in keeping our planet green and healthy.
